The President made the request at a working session with representatives from the council and other agencies on Monday.

At the working session, the President reiterated that amnesty is a humanitarian policy of political and social significance, demonstrating the special leniency of the Party and State.

He asked the Supreme People’s Procuracy to direct People’s Procuracies in localities to continue compiling amnesty dossiers, implement decisions, and detect any mistakes.

The Ministry of Public Security was urged to set out plans to assist the beneficiaries after they return home and reintegrate into the community, while stepping up communication work to encourage others who are still serving prison terms to prove themselves eligible.

The President requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to inform diplomatic and consular offices of countries that have prisoners included in the amnesty list, and coordinate with Vietnamese agencies to complete procedures to bring them home.

After the council submits the amnesty dossiers, the Presidential Office should coordinate and review before sending them to the President for approval to avoid making any mistakes, Phuc stressed.
